Digestive System, Medicinal Herbs, Peptic Ulcer, Proton Pump Inhibitors


Peptic ulcer is a disorder that commonly has an effect on the digestive system. It is a chronic illness which has impact on approximately, 10% of the mankind. The majority of current therapy regimens are based on western medicine. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and histamine-2 (H2) receptor antagonists, which are commonly used to treat peptic ulcers, have been linked to side effects, relapses, and drug interactions. However, several investigations have shown that herbal medications can efficiently heal stomach ulcers in humans and animals using different processes. As a result, this review will focus on common plants with medicinal value which can be utilized to cure or prevent peptic ulcers.
